and a new zogby poll: obama dis/approval down to 42%*
from examiner: Forty-two percent (42%) of American voters believe that a group of individuals randomly selected from the phone book would do a better job than the politicians currently in Congress, says the latest Rasmussen Reports survey. This number has changed by nine percent (9%) from last fall, when thirty-three percent (33%) believed the same thing. The same number, forty-two percent (42%) disagree with that point of view, and sixteen percent (16%) are undecided. Not surprisingly, the difference of opinions is consistent with party affiliation. Republicans would favor random individuals from the phone book over the Democrat controlled Congress by two to one, and Democrats believe the exact opposite by the same margin.
